Any alignment issue is easily corrected when children are at a young age which is known as phase one in their teeth development. Our dentist and orthodontist can help you prepare your child’s teeth for their permanent teeth when they come in.
To ensure your child’s teeth grow in properly, you want them to grow as straight as possible. The more aligned they are, the less likely will they begin to get crooked after their braces are taken off.
At stage 2 of their teeth’s development phase, which is between 12-14 years old, braces will be going to help their teeth on their final alignment and fixing the under/overbite. These braces will have to last between 1-2 years and will not be placed until their permanent teeth have settled in.
You can have your child avoid tooth extractions and any jaw surgery by splitting their braces treatment into two phases making a great difference to their smile and teeth.
